What Today Is: {FridayFreeForAll}

I hope to inspire you today. If not by the lyrics of this beautiful song, then hopefully at least by the beautiful harmonies contained within it.

I have had a special place in my heart for Christian music for as long as I can remember. There was no going back after I was first introduced to Michael W. Smith. Since then, my taste has continued to grow and develop. Growing up in Utah, you don't hear much of this kind of music. Let me just say, there is a HUGE difference between Mormon Christian music and other Christian music.

The lyrics are both equally inspiring. But I just prefer a more contemporary feel.

Here in Oklahoma there is a very large Christian population. I was delighted to find out when I moved here that there were many different radio stations devoted to Christian music.

That's when I heard this song for the first time.

When I heard this song, I nearly teared up from the harmonies. I have tried to explain the impact that harmonies and melodies have on me to Mike. It's hard for him to wrap his head around and it's hard for me to put into words. Let's just say, besides those related to me by either blood or marriage, music is my one true love. {Which is why I started FridayFreeForAll in the first place.} {But we can talk about that later.}

So here I give today's FridayFreeForAll...

Follow You

I am also super excited to bring to you another feature from one of my best friends in the entire world, Shelly.

She's bringing in a little country with one of my favorites, Tim McGraw! She says, "...this week, I heard this song by good ole' Tim, and I couldn't help but share it. I am not perfect by any means. I have held grudges, I have let people down, I have broke hearts, I have a past just like everyone else does...But I sure hope that I am better than I used to be. For afterall, what is life all about if we stay the same?"

See why she is one of my favorite people in the world?

So, here it is....

Better Than I Used To Be
Tim McGraw

  1. What a beautiful song Abby! As I watched the video of the kids playing soccer, I wanted to jump into the screen and play with them. Music has always spoken to me better then any other language really. It allows us to step out of our own bubble for awhile, and enter into a bubble of someone else's. I love it. I really look forward to your Friday free for all's because of the fact that it highlights music, and people sharing their inner most feelings through music.
    Love you

    1. I love both of these artist :) You have such a cute blog!
